About the Author
Penguin Modern Classics began in 1961, when an unconventional Penguin editor - Tony Godwin - decided that authors of his time were producing books that deserved classic status just as much as the works of Dickens or Homer. Many of the early titles published in the list (including Franz Kafka's Metamorphosis, Carson McCuller's The Heart is a Lonely Hunter and F.Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby) are still considered landmark classics.
Penguin Modern Classics have caused scandal and political change, inspired great films, and broken down barriers, whether social, sexual, or in the case of Ulysses, the boundaries of language itself. They remain the very best, most provocative, exciting, groundbreaking, inspiring, revolutionary works of the last 100 years - an organic, ever-growing and ever-evolving list of books that we believe will continue to be read by generation after generation.

What I will say, is that the books themselves, as well as the binding sleeve, are of a superb quality; almost certainly what you would expect from Penguin. The whole set looks fantastic on your bookshelf, and at the very least provides an excellent book end - should you choose never to read any of the books!
If you like short stories, and need a high quality push in the right direction, I can recommend this as a great place to start.
Proved to be a great hit.
